Why Did Our Attorneys Choose Rimon?

Lisa-Marie Monsanto

Project Finance Partner
in Washington, DC

‘‘I was a Partner at Katten before I joined Rimon. Rimon has been a great career choice for me. Rimon is a team of highly skilled lawyers at the top of their fields. Equally important, Rimon lawyers are special people that are cognizant of the day to day challenges lawyers face, be it childcare or eldercare, that other law firms unsuccessfully try to address. Rimon puts a premium on taking time to manage your family life while still servicing clients at the highest level. When thinking about joining the firm one colleague told me we actually like each other. It is true. I enjoy spending time with my colleagues both professionally and personally. Rimon is ahead of its time in defining a new law firm model.’’

Juan Zuniga

Cross-Border Partner
in San Diego

‘‘Having been at two very large firms as well as having run my own firm, I was looking for a firm that would give my clients the benefits of a big law firm without the downside. Rimon provides our clients with comprehensive representation by a team of top attorneys without the downside of excessively high legal bills. Rimon is a full-service firm packed with excellent attorneys in fields such as IP, corporate, M&A and tax. This quality team is what my clients need to help their businesses prosper.’’

Robin Powers

Financial Services Partner
in New York

‘‘Joining Rimon was truly ideal for me, as the firm emphasizes a work/life balance and encourages us to draw on each other’s skill sets to maximize client service. Also, joining Rimon at this time is a unique and exciting opportunity for me in the midst of historic changes in the financial services industry.
Rimon’s compensation structure allows lawyers to receive a fixed percentage (which is higher than any law firm that I know of) for the work they generate as well as a fixed fee for hours spent working for other lawyers’ clients. It’s clear and transparent.’’

John Isaza

Records and Information Governance
Partner in Los Angeles

‘‘I was able to easily transition my Fortune 500 clients to Rimon, and have brought 14 Fortune 100 clients to the firm since joining. Rimon’s flexible platform was key in making that happen.’’

Jill Berliner

Entertainment Law Partner
in Los Angeles

‘‘My clients are very sophisticated and expect the best, so I am very careful about who I trust to work with them. Fortunately, at Rimon, I know I can trust all the members of our team. Over ten Partners in Rimon’s team, across five states, three continents, and several practice groups (including litigation, corporate, tax, intellectual property, estate planning, and more) work closely with me to serve my music and entertainment clients. Meanwhile, Rimon’s flexible structure allows me to live where I want, and how I want, without sacrificing quality. My clients have been very pleased with my move to Rimon.’’

Buz Barclay

Corporate Partner
in New York

‘‘I have become as impressed with the depth of thinking that has gone into building the Rimon team as I have with its capabilities. The sensitivity and responsiveness of Rimon’s lawyers to the needs and concerns of startups, as well as to the largest and most sophisticated users of legal services, stems from the core values of excellence, innovation, and community. This resonates well with both the entrepreneurs and investors that are my clients.

Frankly, removing inefficiency and unnecessary expenditures just makes so much sense, not only from a businessman’s perspective but from a client’s as well. That was my aim when I joined Rimon: to remove inefficiencies at work so I wouldn’t have clients stuck with the cost of them. At Rimon, I am able to keep a broad focus without getting involved with the bureaucracy of private practice.’’


Emma Larson

Asset Finance Partner
in Seattle

‘‘I was looking for a better way to maintain and build my niche practice in asset finance when I found Rimon.  I knew I needed a cost structure that provided greater value to my clients as well as experienced partners in complementary service areas to meet the needs of my cross-border practice.  In addition, I was looking for a firm that placed a low premium on bureaucracy and politics and trusted its partners to grow their own practices.  Rimon gives me the flexibility to manage the unpredictable nature of a cross-border practice with the demands of a dual career family.  I am now well placed to meet industry needs and excited about the innovative structures Rimon has to offer.’’

Melinda Fellner Bramwit

Tax Partner
in New York and New Jersey

‘‘I am a person who believes everything happens for a reason. After twenty plus years as a transactional tax partner in large firm climates, I loved the practice of law but did not love the politics. Rimon approached me, and I could not believe that a place like this existed that could allow me to pursue the intellectual challenges I love, work with stellar professionals in every discipline, and be a part of a group that works as a whole — not as individual parts.  It is a pleasure to be a part of a group that is so forward thinking.’’

Matthew Poppe

Litigation Partner in Silicon Valley

‘‘I chose Rimon over the traditional law firms I was considering because Rimon gives me more flexibility in how I staff my cases, bill my clients, and divide my time between billable and non-billable work. It also has eliminated guesswork and politics from the partner compensation system — a unique feat. And yet it offers the infrastructure I need to practice IP litigation at the highest level, plus a great team of attorneys with whom to collaborate.’’
